  1. Is there a reason the Text Wrap panel is not "pinnable" like studios? Text wrap (for me) is an often used feature and having the panel hang out in the middle of my design window is cumbersome. Just curious...
  2. Hello all — new user here, just in from Quarkland. In Publisher, I want every picture frame to have a ‘runaround’ of 5 mm. So I draw a frame, call the Text Wrap dialog, set it to Square and 5 mm. Next, from the Edit menu, I select Defaults>Synchronize from selection, and Defaults>Save. I expected my next picture frame to use these values and the text to wrap, but it doesn’t work like that — I have to call the Text Wrap dialog again for each new picture. What am I missing?
  3. It is impossible to apply Text Wrap on inline pinned objects. While that may be "by design", it leads to unexpected results if the object spans over multiple columns. In any case it is confusing that Text Wrap panel appears as "applicable" to an object even though it cannot affect it at all: If an inline pinned object is at the beginning of a line and wider than the column, it results in this ugly text mash: Floating pinned object with Text Wrap behaves even more erratically as it floats where the line would be if Text Wrap were not active: Editing Text
  4. Hello this sounds like a simple task, but somehow I don't get any further … I want to place images in my document. Each image should have a desription (caption) right to it. The Image plus description should float with the surrounding text. I experiemted with text wrapping, but this is not satisfactory. See screenshot and example document. (I'm using Publisher Wrappingtest.afpub
  5. Hi. I am well advanced on a magazine I am producing and all of a sudden the text will not wrap around an image I am adding, whereas on the several previous images it worked fine. "Ignore text wraps" is not checked for the text frame. When trying repeatedly to do it Affinity actually crashed, though the crash report goes to Apple not to Affinity I suspect. Has anyone had a similar problem recently? I am using Affinity Publisher 1.8.6 on an iMac with 32GB RAM, running Big Sur 11.1. Thanks!
  6. I have an image surrounded by a text in a text frame. When I set some padding in the "Distance from text" part of the Text Wrap window, the text is not immediately shifted away from the image, but as soon as the value of the padding is increased enough, it jumps line by line. This is not necessarily what I would like to achieve. Is it possible to set the padding more precisely, for example by 1mm?
  7. Hi Publisher team, I'm facing the problem that I can't set the distance from text as exactly as I'd like to. That applies to images as well as rectangles. (I haven't tried circles and other objects but believe that this is a general issue.) Details: I place an image inside my document. Next I draw a text frame and type some Lorem ipsum etc. Then I let this text frame snap to the bottom of the image so that the top of the text frame is attached to the bottom of the image. Now comes the mystery: I select the image and chose a text wrap with the wrap style 'Jump' or 'Square' and set the
  8. A bizarre bug. I selected an image in my document, opened the Text Wrap box, clicked on "tight" and apparently nothing happened, but the programme immediately opened an old file as a second window. Each time I closed the unwanted window and clicked "tight" again, the same thing happened. This happened 4 or 5 times before I gave up. I closed down the programme and left it overnight. Examining the pinned document list in Affinity Publisher I realised it was the first document on the top of the list that was being opened each time. In desperation I have unpinned all the pinned do
  9. Experimenting with how to use style groups, I created a new group, defined its characteristics, and then a made a new paragraph style based on it ("Body-text" — see the screen shot). The screen shot I've linked below shows what happened when I applied the new paragraph style to a line of text. It runs completely outside the frame. (If it matters, the frame was created with the Text Frame tool, not the Artistic Text tool.) I can replicate this with other new text frames. But a paragraph below it, set to "No style," wraps within the text frame as expected. If I style the problematic pa
  10. For a book project I work with pull-out quotes (see attachment). The quotes have a decoration background, and they are wrapped. However, the wrap is separate from the paragraph style, which adds another unnecessary step for clean formatting. So: please include the text wrap to the style sheet, so that one click formats the pull-out quote including the wrap settings. Thank you. 🙂 Helmar
  11. I've got a text in a shape (a double star) and I want to put it partly over a jpg. The shape sits on top as expected, but the text which should be over the jpg doesn't appear. The text outside the jpg appears okay. Publisher on Windows 10.
  12. Hi, How to Automatic wrap pasted text to text box without the box change size! Because instead of return to a new line, the text expands the text area, while I wanted to lock that text box and make the text fill (with wrap and return) Thanks for your help
  13. I just downloaded the Beta, this is the first time I ever use an Affinity product, but I'm planning on buying them soon. I really liked publisher and all, but as of my first time using it, I found a few things missing that could benefit the user (I probably just missed some options for this, but still wanted to share). - Text Wrap Preview: The only way to preview it is watching the text around an image for example move along when you increase the size of it, but it would be nice to have a little guide preview at all times around the image or graphic. -Guides Manager | Margins: The
  14. This has got to be simple and I just can't find it. I've placed a photo onto my Affinity Design artboard and want to wrap text around it. How do I do that? I can't find text wrap in Affinity Designer help, only text on a path, which is not what I want to do. I am on a Windows 10 desktop PC. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
  15. I'm a complete noob at Publisher (but fairly good at Photo and Designer). I'm a really good beta tester though, often finding the most hidden bugs. Anyway, while inserting Text Frames, the wrap style is always "none". Is there a way (yet) in Publisher Beta to change that default, say to "tight" for example?
  16. Suggest better/more intuitive layout of Margin controls and Text Wrap controls if the Top, Bottom, Left, Right fields are placed visually in their logical positions, eg Top at top, Bottom underneath (rather than as now in two columns.......eek! which/where do I look for rapid adjustment). Even the old Quark XP single-column layout of these fields (Top, Bottom, Left, Right) is better than two columns. Small, but important, for those habitually using these controls.
  17. I am starting to see a few posts asking Serif why Publisher hasn't been released yet. After just completing my first BASIC layout project with Designer and Photo it makes sense to me for at least some of the reasons why Publisher hasn't been released. The two currently available apps are still missing some very basic layout tools so Serif needs to get the basics put in those two apps before moving on to the more complex layout software. I wrote a lengthy piece about this in another thread but it was buried one hundred posts down. I just wanted people to be aware of these points so I am startin
